Give your baby something intriguing to look at when she’s hanging out in her crib or play yard. Create a mobile above the space using sturdy string or rope, and secure small toys to it (just be sure she can’t grab them!). Include colorful toys and items of different shapes and sizes. This string of fun promotes spatial awareness and hand-eye coordination, and provides much visual stimulation.
